Base frequencies from DNA Sequences

base.freq computes the frequencies (absolute or relative) of the four DNA bases (adenine, cytosine, guanine, and thymidine) from a sample of sequences.

Ftab computes the contingency table with the absolute frequencies of the DNA bases from a pair of sequences.

Keywords
manip, univar
Usage
base.freq(x, freq = FALSE, all = FALSE)
Ftab(x, y = NULL)
Details

The base frequencies are computed over all sequences in the sample. All missing or unknown sites are discarded from the computations.

For Ftab, if the argument y is given then both x and y are coerced as vectors and must be of equal length. If y is not given, x must be a matrix or a list and only the two first sequences are used.

Value

A numeric vector with names c("a", "c", "g", "t"), or a four by four matrix with similar dimnames.
